Larry Fitzgerald WR ARI 10 Days

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Cardinals believe that Fitzgerald will be available Sunday against the Chiefs, though the wideout will test his knee out before the game to be sure.

Those inclined to roll with Fitzgerald (who has missed the last two games) this week would ideally have a contingency plan in place, but it appears as though he has a good shot to suit up, barring any setbacks in advance of Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff.

Fitzgerald (knee) is considered a game-day decision for Sunday's game against Kansas City.

Fitzgerald is generally expected to play after logging a full practice Friday and a limited practice Thursday and Friday, and AZCardinals.com's Darren Urban thinks Fitzgerald would play, but the team will apparently wait until Sunday to see how his knee reacts to the practice stress. Unfortunately for Fitz's owners, the Cardinals don't play until 4:05 eastern time.

Fitzgerald (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. However, the wideout relayed that he's "highly likely" to take the field Sunday against the Chiefs.

Fitzgerald's comment was accompanied by a smile, but perhaps more telling was his ability to participate in drills for a second day in row, even if he was restricted on both occasions. Nonetheless, continue to watch his progress as the weekend approaches, as his status could receive clarity upon the release of Friday's injury report.

Fitzgerald (knee) in fact practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Prior to practice, coach Bruce Arians raised the hopes of Fitzgerald owners, stating that the wide receiver was slated to participate fully, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Instead of an unhindered showing, Fitzgerald was contained to individual drills, which is still a sign of progress, but not the one intimated earlier. In any case, he'll likely remain involved in drills throughout the week, at which point his availability for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs could become clear.

Coach Bruce Arians (knee) relayed that Fitzgerald will practice in full Wednesday, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

Fitzgerald finally logged a limited showing in drills last Friday, but he nonetheless recorded his second DNP in a row Sunday in Atlanta. While an unhinged practice is music to the ears of Drew Stanton, who is on track to gain a safety valve in the passing game, Fitzgerald's status should receive further clarity as the weekend draws closer.

Coach Bruce Arians said Monday that Fitzgerald (knee sprain) should practice Wednesday, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Fitzgerald has missed the Cardinals' last two games, but if he is able to practice Wednesday and continue to do so through the week without a setback, the wideout's chances of suiting up this coming Sunday against the Chiefs would appear to be solid.

Fitzgerald (knee) is inactive for Sunday's contest in Atlanta, Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports.

Fitzgerald failed to uphold his contention Thursday that he was "highly likely" to suit up in Week 13, but the absence isn't unwarranted as the Cardinals consider the long-term ramifications in search of their first playoff berth since the 2009 season. Expect Michael Floyd and John Brown (teeth) to hold down the fort at wide receiver once again.

Fitzgerald (knee) remains a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Atlanta, per Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.

Per Jason LaCanfora of CBS, Fitzgerald is making a push to play Sunday, though LaCanfora suggests that the wideout could be limited if he is active. In any case, we'll provide an update on Fitzgerald's playing status as Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff against the Falcons approaches.

Fitzgerald (knee) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Atlanta after logging a limited practice Friday.

Fitzgerald declared himself "highly likely" to play as recently as Thursday, but this development indicates that Fitzgerald may have been a little too self-sure when he made the statement. Still, a limited showing Friday is better than nothing, so it seems like he'll make a sincere effort to play Sunday once kickoff nears. Unfortunately for Fitzgerald's owners, the Cardinals don't kick off until 4:05 eastern time.

Fitzgerald (knee) said Thursday that he is "highly likely" to play Sunday against the Falcons, but added that it is not his decision, the Arizona Republic reports.

Fitzgerald still hasn't practiced with teammates since spraining his MCL, so he needs to first be cleared by the training staff before he can think about returning to action. He's the type of veteran who could probably play despite missing practice all week, but his participation in Friday's workout, even on a limited basis, would probably go a long way toward improving his Week 13 availability. Friday's official injury report should provide some clarification.
